There is a fork in the road up ahead. Which way do you go? Left? Right? Right takes you to page 45. The road is washed out, and you and your car float on downstream to oblivion… Luckily, you were smart and kept your place in the book so that you could choose the left fork; page 67. You find a pot of gold under a rainbow and live happily ever after.
Wouldn’t it be great if life were like those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books that we used to have as kids? Do they even still make those? That’s beside the point, but really, I’m sure everyone out there at some point has made a totally idiotic decision.. Then wished that they had paused to consider said decision for 10, 15, 20 minutes.. “If only” is a tough thing to deal with. “If only” life was like a book, where you could look ahead to see the consequences of your decisions.. then choose accordingly. “If only” you could take back that stupid thing you said, or did.. I guess it’s all part of life, learning from mistakes and moving on.

Ok, so has anyone else ever been in a “texting war”? I say war because that is what it feels like to me. Last night I was trying to text a friend, who basically got out about 3 or 4 sentences to my one! I blame it on the phone or my fat “Loken thumbs”. If you are going to have a lengthy conversation, why not just pick up the phone and talk?
On a side note, I finally started the P90X workout (see previous post) with my sister-in-law. We had a 3 year old and an 8 year old who wanted to work out with us.. About a minute into the dvd, they both ran off to go swimming because “it’s too hot”! Granted, we didn’t have air-conditioning and it was 85 degrees. Anyway, the workout was intense like they say.. There was a lot of sweating, grunting, laughing and little cursing (from Julia, mainly – good thing that kids left!). I think I’m going to enjoy this, because it’s kind of a no-brainer. All you do is follow the dvds, and it’s mainly up to you to pace yourself and take control of your results.
